We are deeply disappointed in our Management’s unwillingness to compromise on key issues in these negotiations. We had hoped that the mutually agreed upon media blackout and negotiating in private would result in significant progress that would have permitted the balance of the 2012-13 season to be presented. Since that has not happened, we decided to end the off-the-record negotiations and the media blackout.
The Musicians of the SPCO remain committed to presenting world-class concerts to our loyal audience and community, and will be performing an evening of Italian Baroque Concertos on Thursday January 24 at St Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi, and Friday January 25 at Central Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. Both concerts are at 7:30 PM and will feature soloists from the orchestra. More information can be found at musiciansspco.org.
